This month Yelpers
saddled up to get down to Dublin newest whiskey saloon along the Quays – The Bison Bar
Luke the Bar Manager and his bar team welcomed us with a glass of Jameson’s finest whiskey to calm down the nerves of the Yelpers after being checked out by the huge bison head who surveys everybody that enters the bar! Well something has to guard over their 150 varieties of whisky and tequila!
Keeping things Western style the first Yelpers saddled up along the bar to start their whiskey tasting. The bar staff got things started with a peated single malt, Connemara whiskey, which took our Yelpers on a smooth and complex flavour ride in Bison Bar!
The Yelpers broke up and Luke took one group on an adventurous tour through the maze of the Workman’s Club premises. First stop was the downstairs Bar and venue room which still features the old ballroom seating along the red painted wall.
Upstairs is the first floor bar which host exhibitions from local and international artists, their recent opened new vintage room with flock wallpaper and local purchased antique furniture as well as their roof terrace.
So we claimed down through a maze of stairs and saloon doors to the back of the Bison Bar This smoking area features an impressive bison wall painting by the artist James Early
After learning some interesting facts about the Bison Bar and the attached Workman’s Clubs and the promising news that Bison Bar will be opening a kitchen to serve some good hearty Western food by the end of the year, everybody got back on the saddle to enjoy a glass of rye whiskey chosen by the bar team to spoil our taste buds one more time.
Huge thanks to Luke and his team who made this night whiskylicious in their amazing decorated venue and thank you to you folks to coming along too! Photos were taken by the talented Claire Nash and can be viewed here! Read and write the reviews of the night here! And post your thought etc here on talk!
